Just to be perfectly fucking crystal clear --
IF DEMOCRATS WIN CONTROL OF THE SENATE, MITCH McCONNELL CANNOT DO THE SAME EGREGIOUSLY EVIL BULLSHIT HE’S BEEN PULLING SINCE FOREVER.
If Democrats win control of the Senate, they can finally push forward a better healthcare plan, among other important pieces of legislation that will guide the United States to a more progressive and equitable future. The GOP is so partisan that they would rather see us lose our healthcare altogether during a global pandemic than allow a Democratic healthcare plan to pass. They proved that in this past year.
Democrats just need 2 more seats to hold the majority with VP Kamala Harris as the tiebreaker. There are 2 seats up for grabs in the run-off election.
You do the math.
Listen, the presidential race would not have been this close if more young voters had voted. If every young person in America had voted, Biden would have likely swept the election. We HAVE that power, Millennials and Gen Z together. But we didn’t use it. Now Georgia is giving some of us a second chance.
Please do not get complacent, even though it looks as though Biden is going to win. The GOP is still that same party full of sycophantic and opportunistic narcissists who old white republicans put in power, even without Trump to bow and kowtow to. They will pull the same shit they always have. So...
Because, as a wise man once said, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
EDIT: The image above is a screenshot of a tweet from Cheryl Strayed, November 6th, 2020 at 12:41 AM ET. It reads: “Dear 17-year-olds who live in Georgia: if you’ll turn 18 by January 5, 2021, you’re eligible to vote in the run-off election that will be held on that date. You have until December 7 to register to vote. #FlipTheSenate”

Please, people currently freaking out about the numbers, you have to try to calm yourselves down (myself included) if you don't, you are playing into Trump's plan to disenfranchise mail-in voters.
The election is NOT going to be decided tonight! No matter what the media is trying to push.
Mail in votes count as legitimate votes, and it might take until Friday or beyond to count most of them!
